I am joining Seize the Birthday's sister challenge, Color Hues Color Challenge, in honouring Ukraine today with a yellow & blue challenge (for the Ukrainian flag). My words are few about what is going on in the world.  I'm trying to find a balance between staying informed and keeping my mental health intact. That said, I am so glad to be joining them today... just to put some some crafty love out into the world.

After some false starts, I finally made a card that I'm happy with. I made a 'stencil' by running my sunflower (the national flower of Ukraine) die through my die cutter with some masking paper. Used some Distress Ink to blend this sunflower background.  Fortunately, a random scrap of blue paper I found just happen to match with a couple of enamel dots I had lying around.

It would be great if you could join Color Hues with this blue and yellow challenge (or their regular challenge for this week). All the details are on their blog. I'm so honoured that they asked me to join in.

With the state of the world at the moment, I hope you are being kind to yourself and others. Taking time away from the news to relax and do things you enjoy.
Thanks for stopping by.
